Reprocessed REAPER ERS-1 and ERS-2 orbit dataset in Envisat PDS format (July 1991 - June 2003)

14 November 2013

An intermittent error in the REAPER ERS precise orbit files (POD) in Envisat PDS format was detected for both satellites (ERS-1 and ERS-2), and the entire datasets have, for this reason, been reprocessed.

The problem was identified in the conversion from internal format to PDS format, and the affected ERS-1/2 orbits in Envisat PDS format have now been replaced on the FTP server at DLR (

The problem had no impact on the POD files in any of the other formats.

For new users, access to the reprocessed dataset is provided upon Fast Registration.
